Former Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has stated that he was always quoted out of context by the media for the eight years he served the former administration.
He stated that at a point, he understood their antics and did not allow it to affect his duty as the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the immediate past president, Muhammadu Buhari.
Adesina, who spoke at a media chat organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists in Osogbo on Wednesday, said some media outfit deliberately set him against the members of the public just because he was serving in government.
“My biggest challenge during the eight years that I served with former President Muhammadu Buhari was the fact that a section of the media deliberately quoted me out of context.
“I eventually grew out of it and got used to the antics. Even while I had a television interview, it was turned upside down in the papers deliberately to make me an enemy of the public, but I outgrew it and it did not affect my duty throughout my tenure”, he said.
